In Tirana, activists and organizations that protect the freedom of the press claimed yesterday that the situation of the Albanian media is continuously deteriorating, while the safety of journalists is often threatened by threats and pressures due to work. The Network for Safe Journalists in the Western Balkans has reported 10 cases where the safety of journalists, media workers and media was violated in the first 4 months of this year, and 24 cases during the last year, while lawsuits against journalists in 2023 were doubled.

A roundtable of journalists with representatives of the Assembly, government, justice and Western diplomats took place today to discuss the insecurity of journalists in Albania, where as it was pointed out, the pressures push them towards self-censorship and the push to protect the interests of the owner more than the code of journalism. The representative of the European Center for Freedom of the Press and Media, Flutura Kusari, tells "Voice of America" ??that the media situation in Albania is continuously deteriorating, as was also emphasized in the annual Report of the Reporters Without Borders organization. She says that now is the time for officials and politicians in power to implement the laws, the standards that exist in the European directives on the safety and freedom of the press, starting with an action plan for the safety of journalists, alongside a greater dialogue with civil society organizations. civil. At this table with the media, legislators and representatives of the ministries that cover security issues, the general prosecutor, Olsian Çela, said that this institution is increasing its transparency in front of the media, is encouraging prosecutors to start proactive investigations when they learn about violence and threats to the media, is increasing its work and commitment to the safety of journalists, inviting them to report their cases with facts as soon as possible in order to start investigations, and cooperate with justice to strengthen their protection.
